About Brazen Hussies
Brazen Hussies introduces contemporary audiences to the Australian second-wave feminists, who declared war on ‘male chauvinism', traditional sex roles and demanded that women be set free from the ‘chains of femininity'. This feature documentary traces how the Australian Women's Liberation Movement was born amidst the tumultuous politics of the 1960s, influenced by the anti-war, anti-imperialist, and civil rights movements worldwide. The film combines a treasure trove of startling archive footage with interviews from key activists from around Australia.
